John 14:1-4 (NKJV) Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.
In this second verse, Jesus said that in our Heavenly Father’s house are many mansions, and that He is going back to prepare one for us. Oh, the goodness of God! He did not just make a few dwelling places, but many dwelling places! There is a place being made today for you and for me, and He is making it special just for us!
Can you imagine that? The great architect of all times is making a special place for us to live in throughout all eternity! It is a place where every desire or want that we would ever have for a home is fulfilled. It is a place that is more perfect then anything that we would ever put together. It has the right setting, the right colors, and the right view. And why does He do it? It is because of His love for us! All we can say is, “Wow!” and enjoy what He has prepared for us.
So today, do not look to these natural homes and things of this earth. This is all going to pass away. Look to the eternal, and see all that He has in store for those that love Him. It is going to be exceedingly more than we could have ever even imagined. This world, with all of its corruption, is going to be gone one day soon, and what the Father will give us will be so amazing that it will last us forever. Wow! Can you just see a little of it today through the eye of faith? Keep looking up! He is coming soon!
Confession: My Father has taken time out of His busy schedule to prepare a place for me. Thank you Father for caring so much for me that you are preparing a special place for me. I must be special to you if you would do this!
